International Women’s Day is a beautiful holiday created more than a 100 years ago and celebrated all across the western world. On March 8th 1908, more than 15 000 women took to the streets of New York City, marching for shorter work hours, better pay and the right to vote. Two years later, European feminists dubbed it International Women’s Day. Since its inauguration, this day is synonymous with celebrating the women in your life, often with the gift of flowers.
Sending flowers on International Women’s Day
A lot of the western world tends to gravitate towards Mimosa flowers as a gift for International Women’s Day. However, there are a lot more to chose from, especially in Montreal, where Mimosa flowers are harder to come by this time of year. For example, roses are also an incredibly popular choice, as you can adapt the colour to mean whatever fits the relationship you have with the person you are giving them to. Yellow roses generally mean friendship and familly, whereas pink roses are more reserved for sweet and young love. White roses are a sign of elegance and respect, and red roses symbolize love and passion. Roses are therefore the perfect way to go if you want to add a lot of meaning to your bouquet!
